Great grouse guns don’t have to cost a fortune. In the case of the Beretta you see here, they definitely don’t. This BL-4 is lightweight, reliable, and practically new. And I bet it sell at a very reasonable price.
I think Beretta introduced their BL boxlock O/Us in the 1960s. They came in grades from the BL-1 to the BL-5, and today guy’s like them because they handle like doubles costing many, many times more.
